Twice a month at 11am we hold a traditional service with hymns, prayers, and a short talk at St Mark’s Church situated within the grounds of the hospital. These are typically on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month and alternate between morning prayer and Holy Communion.
Whilst essential maintenance work is undertaken, services are temporarily being held in the nearby Seminar Room 1, also located on the St Mark’s hospital site. Directions to Seminar Room 1 will be on the church door.
A weekly 10am Service is held at our sister church St Peter’s (Details here), 5 minutes from St Mark's.
We look forward to welcoming you and worshipping with you!
We also want to reassure you that although restrictions are relaxing, the health and safety of our church family and visitors remains a priority. We will continue following good practice, ensuring good ventilation through our buildings, maintaining high standards of cleanliness and providing hand sanitiser. Recent changes in government guidance mean that the wearing of face masks is now optional. If you want to wear a face mask, we want you to feel completely comfortable in doing so - but it is no longer a requirement. We want to make Sundays as comfortable as possible for everyone,
